The Avidity Arms PD10 is nearing completion, according to Rob Pincus who partnered with Avidity Arms to bring the personal defense firearm to life.
The 9mm, single stack, striker fired PD10 was first detailed in late 2016 by Pincus who began offering updates on the project via social media. Pincus has kept consumers informed on the PD10’s progress as it marches towards its finale, which is expected to culminate in an official shipping date later this year.
Billed as a carry and personal defense gun, Pincus told Guns.com that the every detail on the handgun has been thoroughly planned to deliver better shooting.
“This gun is designed, purpose built from the first napkin sketch a few years ago to be a personal defense gun, a carry gun,” Pincus said.
Pincus says the 10+1 round capacity pistol is packed with useful features to include an accessory rail, loaded chamber indicator, large magazine release, aggressive slide stop, and DAO trigger. The PD10 offers a full sized grip that will soon provide a more aggressive texture for better handling.
Though Avidity Arms is focusing on bringing the PD10 to market as a full-sized framed firearm, Pincus says a shorter version will deliver even better concealment in the future.
“We’re going to come out with a chopped version that is six or seven rounds plus one; but first we got to get this (PD10) out,” Pincus explained.
The PD10 is expected to enter the pistol market with a MSRP around $499.
